5 years earlier, Dolph Lundgren had played He-Man in Masters of the Universe (1987). A sequel had been written but was abandoned and Albert Pyun rewrote the script and it went from Masters of the Universe 2 to Cyborg (1989) starring Jean-Claude Van Damme as Gibson Rickenbacker. See more »

The Australian theatrical release of the film was heavily cut to receive an M rating. Gone were the head-shots to Vietnamese villagers, Scott getting the knife in the gut by Luc, the diner fight was heavily trimmed, a scientist getting impaled on a needle, the supermarket shootout and Dolph's demise on the farm machinery. All of these cuts were restored for an R rated VHS release and later, an MA15+ rated DVD/Bluray release. See more »
Nothing special whatsoever. I did not like this movie because there was nothing to it. A decent movie has to have a twist and en excellent movie will have multiple twists but this had none. It relied purely on the fact that Jean-Claude Van Damme was in it and that didn't carry it. It made a few bad attempts at humor but even put those in at the wrong times. There was nothing terribly original about the fight scenes either which I was surprised at because Jean-Claude Van Damme generally does have pretty good fight scenes but they just didn't seem to be there in this film.
The only reason I can give anyone to watch this movie is if you're an absolutely die hard Jean-Claude fan. Otherwise do not bother.
